United States-headquartered tribal operator Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) has been selected by Canada’s Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation as the new service provider for the Niagara Gaming Bundle in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The appointment follows a lengthy and strict procurement process, and will see the operator assume the management and operational day-to-day duties at Fallsview Casino Resort, Casino Niagara, as well as the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre.
The plan is to drive increased visitation to the Niagara Falls, and MGE will prove instrumental in the process of creating a dynamic entertainment industry in the region. Customers will be able to enjoy top-class entertainment, whilst the region will enjoy the many benefits associated with expansion, with especially the creation of many new jobs being one of the major positives.
Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe as well as the MGE management board, Kevin Brown “Red Eagle”, said that MGE was proud to have been selected as the service provider of choice, especially since the procurement process had been such a competitive one. Brown said that the appointment marked MGE’s advancement as a leader in the entertainment industry. He also said that the team at MGE were confident that greater economic development would be achieved as a direct result of MGE’s outstanding entertainment, gaming and resort offerings.
Anthony Casdia, Senior Vice President of Business Intelligence at MGE, said that he was especially excited at having been granted the opportunity of becoming involved with the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, as this would be used to create truly unique experiences for the entire region of Niagara, and hopefully encourage economic growth on a massive scale. Casdia went on to say that he was absolutely confident in the team’s capabilities, as they had after all been operating one of the most successful entertainment entities in the United States for the last 15 years, being the iconic Mohegan Sun Arena.
Casdia said that they were eager to put their experience to good use and to establish the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre as a top-ranked venue in Canada.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has said that it is of the opinion that MGE is the right choice for the massive job at hand. The OLC also made it clear that MGE would be expected to continuously uphold the culture of safe and responsible gambling as established and upheld by the OLC.
